- ¾ cup unsweetened apple sauce (learn how to make your own)
- ½ stick butter (best from pasture-raised cows, learn how to make butter here)
- ¾ cup raw honey
- 2 tsp. pure vanilla extract (learn how to make your own)
- 1 egg (local, free-range are best)
- 1 egg white (local, free-range)
- 1 ½ cups organic whole wheat flour
- 1 cup organic whole rolled oats (I do not use quick oats, so I roughly chop these oats in a food processor before adding to other ingredients) –
- ¼ tsp. ground nutmeg
- ¼ tsp. cinnamon
- 1 tsp. baking soda
- 1 tsp. sea salt
- ¾ of a 12 oz. package of dark chocolate chips
- ½ cup chopped walnuts
- ½ cup chopped dried cranberries
Preheat oven to 350°. Now just mix and bake them like a batch of normal chocolate chip cookies. In a mixing bowl, combine all the wet ingredients (I partially soften the butter first, just be careful not to melt it too much). Stir them together with a wooden spoon. In a separate bowl, combine the dry ingredients. Now carefully stir in the dry ingredients in with the wet. Add any desired finishing touches.
Place cookies on baking sheet and bake at 350° for 12 – 14 minutes, depending on your oven and how well done you like your cookies. Enjoy fresh out of the oven, or frozen and thawed for a few minutes.
